Got a friend who is selling his Sonix's Bar 2.1 shock, I would like to know if I could transplant this to my Shift R1? Do they have the same eye to eye length? Thanks! By the way what is the eye to eye length of both frames?
The longer eye-to-eye might have the potential to really knock the bike's geometry out of whack because it's about a half inch longer than what the bike was designed around. My guess is it will also throw the leverage ratio off which make make the shock set-up a problem as well. I can't say that I have had heard of anyone trying to install a rear shock with a longer eye-to-eye on their Sonix bike, but it's not something I'd recommend.
